Welcome to Loftey.com, the Loftey LLC web site. Loftey LLC (“Broker” or “we”) provides the website (the “Web Site”) and related services to you ("User”), subject to the following Terms and Conditions of use (“Terms and Conditions”). If you have any questions or comments, we are always listening at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions that apply to your access and use of the Web Site. By accessing and using Loftey’s Web Site and services you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, as it may be amended from time to time in the future (see “Modifications” below).
By using Loftey’s Web Site and/or any of its services, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you are a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse our Web Site without registering) or you are a “Member” (which means that you have registered to create an account with Loftey). The term “you” or “User” refers to a Visitor or a Member. The term “we” refers to Loftey. You may not use the Service and you may not accept this Agreement if you are not of a legal age to form a binding contract with Loftey. If you accept this Agreement, you represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it or if you are acting on behalf of a company or entity that you have the authority to bind such entity.
As discussed in the Why Loftey? section of our Web Site, we will provide a lower effective rent if you rent any New York City apartment with Loftey and we receive the full fee on your apartment. Fees paid to NYC brokerage firms are sometimes paid by clients like you; sometimes fees are paid by landlords or their representatives; sometimes clients and landlords or their representatives each pay a portion of the fee. Regardless of who pays, brokers fees often total several thousand dollars.
Unlike other brokers that keep the entire fee as profit, when you rent any New York City apartment through Loftey and Loftey receives the full fee (from whatever source or combination of sources), we return a portion of the fee to you by writing you a check for a portion of the fee, thereby providing you a lower net effective rent. You are only eligible for the reduction in net effective rent if we receive the full fee on your apartment (“eligible apartment”).
To be clear: Loftey does not contract with landlords or their representatives to provide you a lower monthly rent; instead, for eligible apartments, we offer to lower the net effective rent on your apartment by writing you a check for a portion of the fee. Thus, if you rent an eligible apartment though Loftey, your lease and related paperwork will state that your monthly rent is greater than the net effective rent advertised by Loftey. For example, if Loftey receives a full fee on your apartment and you elect to receive the lower effective rent instead, your lease and related documents may state that your rent is $3,000.00 per month, but Loftey may advertise the net effective rent as a lesser amount, such as $2,975.00 per month—and in this example, the $25 per month reduction in net effective rent is achieved by Loftey writing you a check in the amount of $300.00.
The offer to lower effective rent with respect to any specific apartment listed on our Web Site is subject to change at any time. We strive to include only accurate, up-to-date information for the apartments listed on our website; however, it is common for buildings to have inaccurate and/or expired advertisements stating that they pay fees when they actually do not. Thus, even if an apartment is listed on our website, we cannot guarantee that the apartment will be eligible for the lower effective rent.
